Defensive adjustments were great. Offense was awful all night play calling takes forever. No sense of urgency from the staff and it trickled down to the players. Gutsy second half performance and a hunter lacks looked really good tonight running the football

Most fans thinking after last weekend lost to Harlan County by a score 49-28 Ashland would lose again vs. Raceland. I am surprised that Raceland didn't put any points on the board tonight in Ashland. It looked like Ashland's defense was weak after giving up 49 points last week vs. Harlan County.

Overall this wasn't a bad loss. Going into halftime it looked like Ashland was going to break this game open and blow Raceland out but the Rams made some good adjustments on defense. Offensively we have to get better. The defense played better in the second half but we have to do a better job wrapping up and the offense has to be able to put some points on the board. I was very impressed that this team didn't break and let the score get out of control.

I am still not sold on Ashland. They have some good athletes and they have a lot of team speed but really Ratliff and Colburn were their only offensive weapons. Ashland also let Raceland hang around way too long and they didn't put them away when they had momentum going on their favor. Tonight they got out with the win but if they want to beat some of the stronger teams on their schedule then they will need to be able to close out a game and hit teams with a knockout blow.

Way to go Tomcats. I'm surprised that the Rams couldn't score.

Ashland and Raceland are both pretty average teams this season. As the previous poster stated, Ratliff and Coburn were pretty much the difference. They made a few plays out of nothing a few times. Raceland seems to be lacking big play guys that can change the game by themselves. Neither team is in the ballpark of the Johnson County teams...but there will be some good competitive games in our area this season between any combination of Russell, Greenup, and these 2 teams.

Raceland outplayed Ashland in 2nd half as far as effort and heart. They simply didn't have the horses. Neither team has anything for the folks in Paintsville.

Good Luck Rams the rest of the season. Ashland was the better team and definitely won the battle of the trenches. Raceland OL let penetration all night and DL was for the most part man handled. Most of Ashlands rush yards were inside. Good win for the Cats. Offense stalled out and costly penalties made this game a lot closer then it actually was. Raceland played better the 2nd half but was dominated the first.

Black getting dinged at end of the game may be a huge concern for Raceland and Colburn going down for Ashland could spell disaster.

Hurt his foot stayed in and took a shot on his knee it looked like a severe injury but a few minutes later walked off on his own. Hearing he is in a boot with torn ligaments and a Doctors visit in the morning.

Hope both are okay. If either of the two are out for an extended period of time, it completely changes the completion of the team.

Raceland O-line got dominated all night. At some point there will need to be some tweaks. D-line Tackles/Ends up field a lot and linebackers took themselves out of a lot of plays. Second half made some adjustments and played a lot better. Offense just couldn't get it going. Ratliff kid is for sure a play maker. Ashland is lucky to have him. Great player and moves around well. Both teams are in trouble when it comes to big games against JC and baby JC. Best of luck to Ashland the rest of the season and Rams better figure it out soon.

With this Raceland team we all knew that we were going to take some bumps and weren't going to be as strong as we have been in years past. I think the Lawrence County game gave a little false hope and last night exposed this team and showed much they really lost. This doesn't mean that they are a bad team though. I actually think this team might have more heart than several of our better teams but physically they are going to have matchup problems that sometimes can't be overcome by playing hard.

One thing that my son brought to my attention during the game and he was right , Dalton Adkins was 1 on 1 on the weak side of the formation with a 10 15 yard cushion a lot and they never went after that matchup , That's where him and John cherry hurt teams last year. Dalton is one or if not the best weapon they have in a short passing game and he had one catch last night for 7 yards I think that's a area Raceland can improve quick . Afar as the line they moved jake to guard and noah was the tackle on the right side the last couple of drives and they moved the ball better maybe that's something they will look at but something has to change . Getting beat by ashland isn't the end of the world this is when they regroup come together and get better each week

Raceland is a good team and will be fine this year. Even though Lawrence County got off to a horrible start against them,the Dawgs are a good 3A team that the Rams beat and to play 4A Ashland at their place and only lose 14-0 is nothing to hang your head about. Rams play a tough schedule right off the bat, but win or lose it will make them better for when it counts.

Agree 100%. Don't know why they didn't take advantage of the 1 on 1. Especially on short yardage situations. I also liked seeing the quicker front defensively in the 4th with Furgeson and Mauk crossing alot. This was a good game to wake these young kids up. But it's nowhere near the end of the world. Bounce back and learn from your mistakes.

Ashland was much better defensively this week. It was good to see them win at the line of scrimmage, especially after their last scrimmage and the season opener.
